Payment: $195-$245 p/w plus completion bonus Location: Christchurch
Region: Christchurch & Canterbury Experience: Limited Experience Necessary

This relaxed and friendly family of four (including their two dogs) is looking for an older sibling who has experience taking care of children below the age of 5, as they are expecting a third child. They love being active and going outdoors during the weekend. This family is living in a rural setting in Christchurch called Rangiora. Rangiora is the largest rural town approximately 30-40 minutes north of Christchurch town centre. It is close to a local horse riding school and there are heaps of local walking tracks around the area. They also have done a fair amount of travelling and are eager for their two daughters to be exposed to other languages and cultures.

Their eldest daughter (4) is very happy and laughs a lot. She likes her walks and music time, as well as interacting with other children. Her sister (2) is a giggly girl always fascinated with her older sibling and loves to interact with others. Both of them love getting on the swings, trampoline and going for walks.

They are looking for an au pair who is energetic, social, shows initiative, and likes the outdoors. If you are someone who is mature, patient, keen to learn new things and not afraid of speaking up when you are unsure of things - then you are a great fit in this family. Your daily duties as an au pair would be caring for their children, child-related chores, preparing meals, grocery shopping, and house work. But mostly entertaining and educating the kids.  

Ideally, you’ll have nanny, babysitting, teaching or coaching experiences or similar to join this family.

If this family sounds like the family you would love to be part of, apply today!
